What are the risks and benefits of contact lenses?

When contact lenses work well and are used sensibly, they can be a huge asset. They give freedom from the weight of spectacles and provide a more natural visual field which is great for sports, activities and self-confidence. However, you must always remember you are putting a foreign body in the eye and the ocular tissues inevitably react to that. This raises the risk of infection, dry eyes and inflammation. Sensible wearing times, attending for regular eye examinations and contact lens checkups are very important to maintain healthy eyes and best vision.
